HIV/AIDS Surveillance Program

Areas of Focus
HIV/AIDS surveillance in Nevada requires the collaboration of several state and local agencies: Carson City Health and Human Services, Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health, Nevada State Department of Corrections, Southern Nevada Health District, and Washoe County Health District.
The primary functions of the HIV/AIDS surveillance programs in Nevada are to monitor the epidemic and provide data for prevention and care efforts. The tasks to achieve this include soliciting, receiving, reviewing, and filing HIV/AIDS case reports in a timely manner; determining if case reports meet the HIV infection or AIDS case definitions, or both; ensuring the collection of all required information (e.g., through follow-up investigation); and maintaining a complete and accurate HIV/AIDS surveillance database.
 
Partner Services
Partner services are the process of identifying infected persons, confidentially notifying their partner(s) of their possible exposure to the infection, and providing necessary follow-up services. Partner services are a range of medical, prevention, psychological, and social services that are offered to individuals with HIV and their sexual or needle-sharing partners.
